Mormon Life

As a prophet, seer, and revelator in the latter-days, President Monson often shares profound counsel and advice through social media.

His words have uplifted many and, at times, warned us of spiritual pitfalls.

As a way to remember his sacred counsel from this year and apply it in years to come, here are a few of our favorite 2016 social media posts from President Monson that were just what members worldwide needed to hear. 

1. President Monson Shares the Unexpected Thing He Would Ask Jesus if He Appeared Today

While many have wondered what it would be like to meet the Savior and speak with Him, a few have wondered: if Jesus were to appear to President Monson today, what question would our prophet ask? 

The powerful answer President Monson shared in response to this question showed great humility and faith as he serves as the servant of the Lord.

From time to time the question has been posed, "If Jesus appeared to you today, what questions would you ask of Him?"
My answer has always been, "I would not utter a word. I would listen to Him."
Down through the generations of time, the message from Jesus has been the same. To Peter by the shores of beautiful Galilee, He said, "Follow me." To Philip of old came the call, "Follow me." To Levi who sat at receipt of customs came the instruction, "Follow me." And to you and to me, if we but listen, shall come that same beckoning invitation, "Follow me."
